Connie loaned me her electric hedge trimmers and I got most of my shrubs trimmed in less than half the time it usually takes. Hopefully, she will sell it to me, as I don't think she has a use for it. Being a master gardener, I have always liked the more natural pruning and shaping methods over the more formal shapes that you get with this, but it really saves time and energy.
At work today, I took a reservation from a guy named Charles. I had trouble with the reservation and had to call him back 3 more times to ask questions or get additional information. I explained that I was in training and we had some laughs and all was good. The phone rang and it was Charles. He asked me if I ever watched Two and a Half Men. Did I know Charlie? Did I know Rose? He said, "I go by Charlie - your name is Rose - are you stalking me?" We laughed again and ended the call. So ... the job is kind of fun at times - especially when people are happy and not so serious.
Friday, October 24. The last 2 days have been busy with appointments. My annual wellness checkup was yesterday and all is good. My only followup is to have a mammogram.
My car had a checkup too. I took it to AAA for an oil change and everything checked out with that. I was struggling with making a decision on where to take my car for maintenance, then I got a coupon from AAA for a $14.99 oil change and decided to go there. I have no regrets, I feel I was treated fairly and the offered a good price for what was included and I will definitely go back there again. Thanks to Randy & Julie for the birthday gift membership.
Today, I had it in to the local dealer for some recall work, there were actually 3 recalls - nothing serious, but all were taken care of and I left there without paying a cent. They replaced a fuse and washed it too.
I finally finished the collage of the camping trip that I took with Charlotte. What great memories!
Saturday, September 25. Right after my walk with Frisco this morning, Connie and I headed out to community sales at Palmas del Sol. We both found some good deals and enjoyed the search.
I had an appointment for a haircut with Kelli this afternoon - really needed it and it was nice to see her again and catch up with the news of the summer.
When I got back home, I started to prep for dinner, as I invited Chuck and Kathy and Connie for Ben's pasta, Italian sausage, Caesar salad, and pumpkin pie. Chuck brought his yummy peppered dinner rolls and we had a great time, drinking a cocktai, talking and eating. It really felt good to cook and to share a meal. We're watching the KC Royals play the SF Giants in the 4th game of the World Series. It looks like they will be tied 2/2 after this one - 11-4, SF at the bottom of the 8th and I'm going to bed. Exciting stuff.
